XkbGetKeyTypes - Man Page

Obtain the list of available key types in the server's keyboard mapping


Status XkbGetKeyTypes (Display *dpy, unsigned int first, unsigned int num, XkbDescPtr xkb);


- dpy

connection to X server

- first

index to first type to get, 0 => 1st type

- num

number of key types to be returned

- xkb

keyboard description containing client map to update


XkbGetKeyTypes queries the server for the desired types, waits for a reply, and returns the  desired types in the xkb->map->types. If successful, it returns Success.

XkbGetKeyTypes returns BadAccess if the Xkb extension has not been properly initialized and  BadValue if the combination of first and num results in numbers out of valid range.

NOTE: XkbGetKeyTypes is used to obtain descriptions of the key types themselves, not the key types  bound to individual keys. To obtain the key types bound to an individual key,  refer to the key_sym_map field of the client map.



The Xkb extension has not been properly initialized
